Green Shack Program, is a free zonal recreation program scheduled every year in the month of July & August that provides fun and active opportunities to the children of the whole Edmonton city to learn various new things during this period.
More than 100 Community leagues throughout the city show their commitments towards this program by the contributing $1000 each that funds almost 182 Green shack programs.
Two innovative programs were started during 2014 to reach to more children in Edmonton.
• The Pop Up play program was offered in 34 neighborhood, keeping in mind the places where the playgrounds are scanty.
• The summer recreation program was kicked off to increase the participation among the children by familiarizing their parents and family members.
Based on Survey results that were gathered at the end of 2014, where parents were 96% satisfied with this program and almost everyone was ready to recommend to their family and friends.
